TALLAHASSEE – Florida State has added wide receiver Destyn Hill, it was announced Friday. The New Orleans native, who is set to begin classes Monday, originally signed with the Seminoles as part of the 2021 signing class and will be a true freshman for the 2023 season.
“I am so very excited to have Destyn Hill here and officially in our program,” head coach Mike Norvell said. “He has showcased a tremendous amount of maturity and persistence as he dealt with a private family matter that delayed his enrollment. We are grateful for his desire to be a Seminole and excited for what he’s going to bring to the Nole Family on and off the field. Destyn was one of the best receivers in the country at Edna Karr High School while earning high honors academically. He is a dynamic playmaker with game-changing speed which will give him the opportunity to have an impact at receiver and also in the return game.”
